Maps & Art
She strives to provide a friendly, family-oriented shop where we can work together to find the art and/or frames that fit your décor while focusing on fine art, original photography, original etchings, and reproductions of historic maps and prints.
A very unique part of her business is “Bella’s Corner” where children can play while parents are picking out the art, photos, mats, and framing they are looking for. This corner is named for Isabella, Elizabeth’s daughter. Features of this corner include toys, games, and DVDs for your children to enjoy.
At Wimsey Cove, we feel that:
“Through art, children can express the creativity that they will need as adults to cope in this world.”

Wimsey Cove Maps & Art, formerly in the Market House, is now at 103 Annapolis Street, the “main street” of West Annapolis. In 2007, Elizabeth opened Wimsey Cove Framing & Art in Edgewater. “We will continue our picture framing business there, but we are moving our historic maps and art to the new West Annapolis store,” she said.
The store features historic maps and bird’s eye views of places all over the world, but the emphasis is on making maps of Annapolis and Anne Arundel County available for local history lovers. In particular, we carry reproductions of the plats for many turn-of-the-century suburbs around Annapolis, including the 1890 plat of West Annapolis, the original lay-out of Wardour, and the plans for Woodland Beach and other historic subdivisions. Wimsey Cove also carries National Geographic maps & globes and gifts & books.
Wimsey Cove Featured Artist
Our featured local artist is photographer Melissa E. Kangas, a member of the Muddy Creek Artists Guild. As a naturalist, Melissa focuses her camera on the colors and forms created by the sun rising or setting over our Chesapeake Bay coves, on the marshes and animals along our shores. Always looking for sharp contrasts of deep color, Melissa makes no changes in the “darkroom,” but spends hours waiting for light and cloud and nature to make their own unique picture. Her show runs through the middle of May.
Another New Exhibit
We also have another new exhibit, Finding Our Roots on Annapolis Street, which will be on display through the end of May. The exhibit, funded in part by the Four Rivers Heritage Area and West Annapolis Business Affiliation, was created by the West Annapolis Heritage Partnership to illustrate the “can do” attitude of West Annapolis since 1650. Many of the maps used in the exhibit are on sale at Wimsey Cove Maps & Art. Local historians, Virginia Vroblesky and Constance Ramirez, are there on Sundays to talk about the Great Wardour Train Wreck, Luther Giddings’ vineyard, and the witness trees in West Annapolis.
